I really like Lela rose’s bridesmaid dresses, but when I realized how much my girls would have to spend, I realized it would not be happening. The wedding is late july, which means I should have had them picked by now. Does anyone know where I can find some dresses that are cocktail legnth a little above the knee, made of chiffon or other non-shiny flowy fabric, and under 200$ each..? I need 4 and am leaning towards different styles or shades of yellow.
I like lela rose, ann taylor, sarah seven

J. Crew for sure! If you’re not picky about the girls having the same dress, you can always tell them to shop there for a specific color and fabric. That way they’ll match for the most part and can spend what they’re comfortable with. J. Crew dresses tend to go on sale so your BMs can pick a dress that’s anywhere from $70 to $200+.

@littlewhitedots: I too did the JCrew route. I thought they’d be mega expensive but they weren’t actually. Just went to the final sale page and got the sophia in silk tricotine. It was beautiful.

I found some MoriLee Bmaid dresses for about $120-1900, they were short, and even had a one shoulder, think it was $123!
Even consider Nordstroms or Macy or Nordstroms Rack! They have a great selection of Formal Dresses!
And if you are open to it Davids Bridal and Alfred Angelo just released their Spring Collections! I was not open to DB or AA, but I dont want my girls paying too much for a short dress they will most likely wear once or twice (if that!)! I feel you! Hope you find a great deal!

I got a gown from http://www.keepmeinstitches.biz Fabulous quality for LITTLE money. I bet you could find something like those dresses you posted. Some are only about $80.00 each. I felt comfortable ordering from them because they have a store Rowan’s Bridal in Scottsdale, PA. The only thing you will have to be careful about ordering sizes. I got measured professionally, at my drycleaner/tailor and wasn’t sure what size to order -so I called their customer service and I ended up getting the perfect size. Oh you are in PA, so maybe you could even visit their store!!! Lucky you!!! 🙂

Try houseofbrides.com they have most designers and usually have a little lower prices than the other bridal retailers do. I ordered mine from here and they even shipped to Norway. Ordered them in october and they are now officially in Norway (just need to pick them up at the post office).

Would you be willing to chip in a little? I had my heart set on a specific dress, but it was out of my BM’s price range. So we all came to an agreement of what they felt a reasonable price was and I paid the difference.

@creativeplannertobee: Thanks for this info. I may use this store. I have to have a balero jacket with the bridesmaid dress because my bridesmaid is uncomfortable showing her arms. They have mother of the bride dresses that look like bridesmaids & with a jacket for $119.00 below. Normally, it is $50 to $120 just for the jacket.

um im not a fan of davids bridal at all but the yellow dresses they have the exact same styles in your color. They have them in satin and also sateen cotton which is still elegant but nice for summer and they are under 100, which your girls may appriciate!!
